Wall Street Wonder in The Making! QTMM

February 15, 2014

The beauty of this quantum dot is its ubiquitous use in so many life changing applications.

It’s all about a nanotechnology company that can make copious amounts of quantum dots that the average person doesn’t understand, know if you can see them with the naked eye, how they are used or what they even are.   Quantum dots are man made crystals smaller than human cells. Their special electrical conductivity properties have generated a new class of semiconductor.  These unique nanocrystals are creating quite a stir in the industry because the technology applications are across a broad spectrum and you may remember the growth of companies like Intel, Samsung and Texas Instruments that were making semiconductors.  Quantum Materials Corp. (USA) makes Quantum Dots which are the next generation of semiconductors.

Like to be financially secure?

I first read in Motley Fool a statement and loved it because it is so true, So, I’ll relay it again “the secret to making a fortune in the stock market is to identify a unique growth business poised to dominate a mass market.” You’ll want to remember that and invest for the future in nanotechnology. One company that meets the criteria as a growth business that will dominate a mass market is Quantum Materials Corp (USA) with their Tetrapod Quantum Dot’s (TQD).  They have multiple uses in a wide array of applications in many different sectors...not just solar, medical and visual displays. Those were the primary reasons that I invested in this stock in the 1st place and as more and more uses for quantum dots are discovered every day,  it re-enforces that I made the right decision….”it’s the same as having ‘a diversified portfolio , all in one stock’.”[1]  An investment in this nanotechnology company that most people know nothing about is going to change how the world develops in ways completely unimaginative to most.
Tissue welding with lasers during surgery, selective cell isolation to eradicate cancers, Solar cells with up to 65% efficiency, displays that pop with vibrant colors, power consumption 50% less than existing means, 3D TV’s that could go into the realm of holographic realism, clothing and paints that change color with the whim of your desires. Sounds far fetched?
So was Dick Tracy’s 2 way wrist radio/TV watch in 1964, precursor to cell phones today. The Quantum Materials Corporation developed the method to mass produce a nanocrystal called a QUANTUM DOT that will follow the world-changing technologies like Plastics 1920’s – 40’s, Biotech 1940’s – 60-s, Internet 1970’s – 90’s and now Nanotech 2010 – ?.
The beauty of this quantum dot is its ubiquitous use in so many life changing applications.
A previous press release with NanoAxis using Quantum Materials Corp TQD’s in their Cancer, Diabetes, Alzheimer’s and depression research was eye opening. http://www.prweb.com/releases/2011/9/prweb8794822.htm Multiple applications like that in one sector of one market give creadance to the depth of this technology into the diverse commercial markets opening up. Optoelectronics and the display screens that save energy proposed for future QDLED iPhones [2&3]  to the household light bulbs will all use Quantum Dots. Anything that has color associated with it is a candidate for QD use. How broad is that? And the amazing part of this is it goes both ways. Not only do quantum dots give off vibrant light in every visible color spectrum but they absorb light in every spectrum to generate electricity. Solar cells will power devices 24/7. This day and night production of electricity uses solar cells that generate power from the ultraviolet thru visible to the infrared lighting range to produce their power. To be more descriptive, sunlight at zenith (climax or high point) provides an irradiance of just over 1 kilowatt per square meter at sea level. Of this energy 527 watts is infrared radiation, 445 watts is visible light, and 32 watts is ultraviolet radiation. The wafer type solar cells available today can only process visible light. That leaves out over half of the energy available from IR and the remainder in the UV. 56% of the available energy to be converted to electricity is LOST using today’s solar cells. Tomorrow using the Solterra Renewable Technology flexible solar cell you will be able to capture that lost energy in the IR and UV region. And what is really exciting about this new Nanotechnology with Tetrapod Quantum Dots is it’s absorption capability 24 hours a day! Like enhanced night vision goggles the IR at night (although it would be a small amount) is enough to continue generation of power around the clock.

You can’t say now that you didn’t have a chance to look into what could be the next Wall Street Wonder company with return potentials like Dell, Microsoft, Apple and Amazon, and if investing a little in an individual company isn’t your style, at least look into a Nanotechnology fund. IT IS THE FUTURE.

I suggest you investigate Quantum Materials Corp – ticker QTMM and if you decide not to invest at least follow the company developments. You can always change your mind later, just don’t watch another life time opportunity pass you by. Life is too short waiting for the next one to come by.

Good luck, health and prosperity in what ever choice you make.

Bill

QMC’s Quantum Dot Industry Growth Potential = Nothing less than Explosive!

October 19, 2012

Quantum Materials Corp  is the catalyst! – ticker QTMM

August 18, 2012 According to a new market research report, “Quantum Dots (QD) Market – Global Forecast & Analysis (2012 – 2022)” published by MarketsandMarkets (http://www.marketsandmarkets.com), the total market for Quantum dots is expected to reach $7480.25 million (7.48 billion) by 2022,  at a CAGR of 55.2% from 2012 to 2022. [3] This is in line with previous predictions: The global market for QDs, which in 2010 is estimated to generate $67 million in revenues, is projected to grow over the next 5 years at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 58.3%, reaching almost $670 million by 2015, representing a tenfold increase. Following the initially modest revenues generated by standalone colloidal QDs—primarily serving the life sciences, academic, and other industrial research and development (R&D) communities—within the next 2 years several significant product launches are expected with colloidal or in situ QD underpinnings. These will bolster market revenue considerably. The biggest growth sectors will be in optoelectronics, solar energy, optics, and electronics, adding to strong growth already established in the biomedical sector. Specific QDbased products include lasers, sensors, Flash memory, lighting and displays, second and third-generation solar panels, security deterrents, and several enhancements to portable devices.[1] 

Katharine Sanderson wrote for the Nature Journal June 10, 2009:

There’s gold at the end of this rainbow. Nanocrystals called quantum dots have promised to revolutionize display technologies, solar power and biological imaging for more than a decade. Yet the quantum-dot market has remained small, with a handful of companies selling dots directly to researchers, using the particles to develop their own products or licensing their technologies to partners. [2]

Quantum dots have been around for quite a while, but they’re taking a really long time to mature,” says David Hwang of the market-analysis company Lux Research in New York. A key barrier is price: quantum dots can cost anywhere from US$3,000 to $10,000 per gram, restricting their use to highly specialized applications.  (QMC has taken that significant barrier down.)

But industry analysts are now predicting extremely rapid growth for the market over the next few years, driven by demand for energy-efficient displays and lighting, and enabled by cheaper, more efficient manufacturing processes. In September 2008, market-research company BCC Research of Wellesley, Massachusetts, predicted that the market for products relying on quantum dots would grow from $28.6 million in 2008 to $721 million by 2013, with particularly rapid growth in the optoelectronics sector from 2010 (see graph).

It was brought to my attention and I have to say the projections made are about 2-3 years behind by the current standards.  Developments in solar using Quantum Dots didn’t develop as fast as expected and is an obvious example looking at the chart. Pretty much all the markets that were expected to use QD”s are far below the projections.  Do you know any company other than Nanoco that has received over a million for QD’s for any use? The only uses have been in the research fields to date, developing the products that can be commercialized when QD’s become economical. Since the commercialization of products has taken in inordinate amount of time, it tells me there could be a lot of pent-up demand building for QD’s. So the prediction above of extreme rapid growth may just be right on the mark if not an under statement.                                                                               Courtesy BCC Research

Michael Edelman, Nanoco’s chief executive, says “If this market is going to take off we’ll need a lot of material.”(2) The last couple years have found many new applications for Quantum Dot use. Current and future applications of QDs impact a broad range of industrial markets. These include, for example, biology and biomedicine; computing and memory; electronics and displays; optoelectronic devices such as LEDs, lighting, and lasers; optical components used in telecommunications; and security applications such as covert identification tagging or biowarfare detection sensors.[1]

Quantum Materials Corp. (USA)  can now provide the low cost, high volume, high quality quantum dots that will fuel the growth in the various industries worldwide because of their continuous flow process. Mass production of Quantum dots will be the catayst that provides the cross over from product research to commercialization. The numerous markets and the explosive growth potential leaves plenty of room for others to try and compete also. Try they will and just as Enterprise, Avis, Hertz, Budget are all prosperous, the nanotechnology field for quantum dots will be no different as it matures. But it’s always better to be the MARKET LEADER and NUMBER ONE.

Quantum Materials Corp. (USA) the global play that’s about to pay.

When is a penny stock NOT a penny stock?

June 30, 2011

When is a penny stock NOT a penny stock?  When its growth is poised to dominate a mass market!  http://www.qmcdots.com/ and http://www.solterrasolarcells.com/

I’m sure if you have been investing you have gotten many recommendations, next multi baggers and the biggest sure thing since Krispy Krème, MSFT, Dell ….and I’m sure you have seen some go by that you wish you hadn’t passed up.  However “the secret to making a fortune in the stock market is to identify a unique growth business poised to dominate a mass market.” Don’t believe me, do your DD that the Quantum Dot (QD) Nanotechnology is in a significant number of industrial applications from Solar, Medical, Optoelectronics to MEMS and Quantum Computing. QD’s are the next generation of semiconductors. If that doesn’t qualify for a mass market then I don’t know what would.

Why hasn’t QD Technology taken off? PRICE, QUANTITY AND QUALITY. Up until Quantum Materials Corp (Ticker – QTMM) developed the means to mass produce QD’s economically with >95% uniformity the research studies and commercialization of products has been significantly restrained. So much so it has taken 20 years to get to this phase.  That no longer is the case and you have a chance to see truly life changing technology develop before your eyes for those willing to investigate and learn about the story.  When is a penny stock NOT a penny stock?  When its future earnings are coming from many business applications.

Solar and Oil don’t MIX

June 28, 2011

That new paradigm in solar by Quantum Materials Corp/Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc (QMC/SRT) is down right deadly for the Oil moguls. Their ride for the past 60 years is about to come to an end the next 5-10 years. It won’t happen instantaneously but it will happen. There are several reasons the landscape is going to change in the oil industry. First and foremost is technology. Entering the explosive growth that is about to start in Nanotechnology is for most going to be mind boggling. Hard to comprehend what some of the space sci –fi imaginations are thinking about will be able to come to reality. 3D Holograms, who would have thought. In the future that will be the entertainment theater in which you are right in the middle of all the action. You thought 3D IMAX was something, you haven’t seen anything yet. So if technology gets us to this new level how does that affect the old staple oil?  First to be affected is the decrease in real demand, it isn’t going to dry up but it isn’t going to be driven by the oil speculators driving up the price instead of from real demand. Second, most of the large developed countries will be extensively powered from alternative fuels and 80% off the grid. Solar will be the most dominant of the energy sources that will decrease the need for oil initially. Third is Third world countries will drive the demand and resultant price for oil. Power even there for electricity will come from some of  the alternative fuels. That leaves a huge demand decrease and drop in oil prices. Fourth, more electric cars will mean more solar arrays for power and less gas guzzlers needing gas.  Fifth is economically depressed countries lacking electricity will also cut into the oil profits and demand. They won’t need to use the oil as they start to evolve into productive entities. Power will be cheaper and more reliable locally produced with solar. Sixth, the strategic oil reserve just opening up tells me the government is looking to lower cost replacement oil, if it is even replaced at all in the future. The electricity replacement from solar power will offset the utilities generating costs using oil. Competition in this case will be very healthy for the average customer. Seventh, the Cartel is without leadership that can rule. Hard to get consensus between the members any more. .Aside from the new finds several of the non cartel countries are making their way into the global market. When given an alternative to the oil most will opt for the environmentally friendly product. Make the alternative cheaper, add in that it is the oil pollution solution and it’s a done deal. Overall oil is going to have a hard time holding a candle to solar in the foreseeable future. Oil will always be around but as far as a THE dominant source for generating power and energy, history will write that it’s time has come and gone.

Game-Changing Stocks – QTMM set to lead Quantum Dot Nanotechnology

June 4, 2011

Received the article below from Mr. Obermueller in my e-mail along with all the other material but found some of the points here very apropos for Quantum Materials Corp, OTCQB ticker: QTMM.
http://www.streetauthority.com/a/what-i-learned-well-known-stock-2500-458320

Andy Obermueller wrote: “Most of you know me as the Chief Strategist of Game-Changing Stocks. The entire focus of my advisory — and my investment philosophy — is to find those situations where the “rubber meets the road.” I’m talking about those profitable instances where a company, technology, or trend is really about to soar.

And while the goal sounds noble, my earnest intentions mean nothing if I don’t have a method to fit my aims. Of course, I do have a method. And the best news is that its main tenets aren’t difficult to put to work in your own portfolio…

First, research is the only way you’ll successfully find the next big thing. Most game-changers are ignored by media outlets until they’re bigger trends. By then the opportunity for the biggest profits has passed.

And believe me, I know whereof I speak. I was business writer and editor for years at some of the nation’s largest papers. By the time you read a story in The Wall Street Journal or Forbes or Barron’s, the smart money is already in and scoring profits.
Now, I have a pretty big advantage of most investors. Much to the benefit of my readers, it’s my job to research these ideas. Most people simply don’t have the time.

My office is filled with clippings, newspapers, SEC reports, and magazines lying just about everywhere. (I read just about anything I can get my hands on.)(Sounds like some of the board members for QTMM on Investorshub http://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/board.aspx?board_id=15185)

But research is only one part of the process. To profit the most from game-changing ideas, you also have to be an investor.

Now we all consider ourselves investors — after all, we buy stocks, right? That’s not quite what I’m talking about.

When you hear about “game-changers,” I bet you think of stocks that rise dramatically nearly overnight. You buy in, hold for a few weeks or days and then sell after a quick run-up. But in my experience, real game-changers see strong returns for months and years. (This is what we are really talking about here and that is what gets me all excited. It was once said over on Motley Fool the secret to making a fortune in the stock market was to identify a unique growth business poised to dominate a mass market. If QTMM and their quantum dots doesn’t fit that bill, I don’t know what does.)

Look at shares of Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL). It was more than seven years ago when shares traded at $13. Now they’re at $337. That’s a gain of nearly 2,500% (Apple has since my initial writing of this article reached $607 on 5-23-14 for a gain of 4,600%)

And if you look at the biggest winners in the market’s history, it’s the exact same story.

Walmart (NYSE: WMT) didn’t grow to a national presence overnight. Its shares didn’t soar for just a few weeks either. Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) may have grown quickly, but even those with the foresight to buy shares in the ’80s wish like hell they had hung on to them. As long as the trend behind an investment is still moving positively, I want to be profiting from it. And I have no problem seeing profits build year after year after year.

Many happy returns . . .

Andy Obermueller
Chief Investment Strategist — Game-Changing Stocks”

Hope Andy’s point of view helps some of those on the fence make their decision.  Quantum Materials Corp is a long term investment. The first 5-10 years will be the glory years with the next 10+ good for growth/dividends, (jmho). That’s right in line with Mr. Obermuellers message here. Invest in a game changing stock early and stay invested in it!!! Of course you take some out along the way to enjoy life, otherwise, why bother investing?

Good luck and do your DD before investing.

How to avoid being misled or ripped off by Solar Marketers

April 24, 2011
  • Every day we are being misled or getting ripped off by some unscrupulous sales man trying to make his commission, bonus or quota. Being caught in  the “Close” is about the salesman using the technique effectively. The Solar industry is continuously  mis-representing efficiency to you,  the customer about to spend 5, 10, 20, 40 thousand for a system. How? By telling you their efficiency is the best. But what you don’t know is it may be for a short 1-2 hour period or even minutes at the PEAK efficiency. The rest of the time it’s not so good. So your overall efficiency levelized over 24 hours is, well pretty dismal.

That’s right they don’t want “off peak” to make a levelized playing field for EFFICIENCY over a 24 hour period. Makes sense to some degree. The sun doesn’t shine at night, unless you count reflecting moon beams. It’s awfully dark on a cloudy night, not to mention some hellatious thunderstorms have turned day into night, it’s that dark. And overcast days don’t help with enriching that tan you managed to acquire baking in the sun. But I do remember getting burnt on cloudy days at the beach. Must have been my imagination, a wind burn, that is what it was, a wind burn. Or was it something else? I remember some one mentioning UV. I can’t see it or feel it like the sun rays, so that couldn’t be it, or could it?
We are entering a new phase, a paradigm shift for the energy industry. Customizing your longitude and latitude characteristics to the generation facility for your power. UV, IR, and VL all come into play some time during the day and night. Visible light (VL) is pretty obvious as well as the Ultra Violet (UV) , that ‘s why we wear our sunglasses to protect our eyes from UV, not because we look good in them. And then the IR, what is infrared (IR)? It’s complicated to explain as you will see from the Wikipedia definition: “Infrared Technology is based upon (IR) light that has electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength longer than that of visible light, measured from the nominal edge of visible red light at 0.7 micrometres, and extending conventionally to 300 micrometres. These wavelengths correspond to a frequency range of approximately 430 to 1 THz,[1] and include most of the thermal radiation emitted by objects near room temperature. Microscopically, IR light is typically emitted or absorbed by molecules when they change their rotational-vibrational movements. “ Got that? Well to put it more in the terms of how it is used in solar applications they go on to say:
Sunlight at zenith (climax or high point) provides an irradiance of just over 1 kilowatt per square meter at sea level. Of this energy, 527 watts is infrared radiation, 445 watts is visible light, and 32 watts is ultraviolet radiation.[2]”. The wafer type solar cells available today can only process visible light. That leaves out over half of the energy available from IR and the remainder in the UV. 56% of the available energy to be converted to electricity is LOST using today’s solar cells. Tomorrow using the Solterra Renewable Technology flexible solar cell you will be able to capture that lost energy in the IR and UV region. And what is really exciting about this new Nanotechnology with Tetrapod Quantum Dots  is it’s absorption capability 24 hours a day! Like enhanced night vision goggles the IR at night is enough to continue generation of power around the clock. So when someone tries to sell you on their solar cell being the most efficient, ask them to tell you the 24 hr energy absorption and overall efficiency rating for the panel. That will stop them dead in their tracks and ask them what is their LCOE?
LCOE is the Levelized Cost of Electricity over the life of the power generating facility. Starts from construction costs and runs to disposal, a “cradle to grave” cost in which to compare overall generating cost. The lower the LCOE the better you are. Now you have something tangible to compare.

Solar Industries Worst Nightmare to become a reality!

October 19, 2010

If we were to take the solar manufacturers hundreds of millions of dollars of capital investment and tell them their investment is now worthless, do you think they would be upset? Well many of their old processes being time consuming, very costly, extremely complicated and excruciatingly cumbersome are about to be just that, dinosaurs of the past! Welcome in the new age of light weight solar cells from nano particles, in particular a nano-scale crystal called a Tetrapod Quantum Dot (TQD). This microscopic particle carries property characteristics that are still unknown to man. Every day universities around the world are discovering new functions, applications and additional properties. What is known is they shed a whole new light on many subjects, literally. Dr. Jabbour the Chief Science Officer (CSO) for Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc. has been researching their use in: “flexible-roll-to-roll-electronics and displays, smart textile, moisture and oxygen barrier technology, transparent conductors, organic light emitting devices, organic and hybrid photovoltaics, organic memory storage, organic thin film transistors, combinatorial discovery of materials, nano and macro printed devices, micro and nanofabrication, biosensors, and quantum simulations of electronic materials.” Dr. Jabbours research studies have led to the development of Solterra’s high speed production line for printing solar cells at a rate of 300 m2 per minute .*1 In the near future the Tetrapod Quantum Dot LED is destined as the light of the future along with the display applications currently being worked on by many companies like Sanyo, LG and Panasonic for more vivid and enhanced color displays for the TV’s. All from these Quantum Dot’s., but that’s the future. The now is in solar to reduce green house gas emissions and our carbon foot print as Steven Squires CEO of Quantum Materials Corp. see’s a more universal benefit from quantum dots. He wrote, “Quantum Dot (qdot or QD) solar tech is the only viable solution to satisfy the world’s energy demands without placing the earth and all its inhabitants in peril in the process.” *2 His vision of a cleaner environment is echoed by many around the world.

It is widely known that solar isn’t the only answer to this carbon foot print problem. Solar is currently one small part but it will have such a monumental impact on the quality of life around the world that it is the most important energy source at this junction of time. Third world countries with starving poor will be able to grow crops in previously un-irrigated lands. Uninhabitable land can be turned into an oasis. Salt water can be turned into fresh water when there is a power source.  Electricity is a powerful tool for those without it. We take for granted our lights will always be on from the utility companies providing us power. Just what if they didn’t? How will you survive, no hair dryer, frozen food, home shopping channels or football games to watch. You get upset now if you lose power for a couple hours in a storm, imagine days, weeks turning into months. Kind of unimaginable but with the amount of vengeful hate, some not so stable people carry around with them, it isn’t unrealistic now a days and who knows what the future holds. Supplemental solar power, if you aren’t capable of going off the grid completely will become a way of the future. All this will be brought about by the mass production of economical solar cells without subsidies. The solar cell manufacturers WORST nightmare will become a reality thanks to a company called Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc.!

OPTIONAL EARLY RETIREMENT PLAN – $75 a 1000 shares

April 4, 2010

 Stock Market – OTC – TICKER :    QTMM

If there was any time you thought about investing and didn’t, this would be the time to rethink that decision. March thru May was the first drop of what will most likely be the waterfall in the future of news about the company accomplishments that will develop in the years to come. Industry advancements in Quantum Dot (QD) technologies that have been developing for the last 20 years are about to be released due to Quantum Materials Corp./Solterra’s revolutionary process for producing Quantum Dots and their flexible Solar Cells. Dr. Glass and CEO Stephen Squires have an oil pollution solution and are providing answers for improving the Environmental & Energy needs of the future!  Their new Nanotechnology developments will benefit our earth and mankind in general. Consider owning a part of history in the making before it’s another event in the history books you had a chance to capitalize on and didn’t.
Do your DD to make sure it’s environmentally, economically and personally right for you. Go to this link to learn the most important reasons WHY you should consider investing in the Nanotechnology field.          http://bit.ly/5ElApo   

Previously released before the name change from Hague to Quantum Materials Corp (QMC):

Hague Corp.’s Subsidiary, Solterra Renewable Technologies, Announces the Appointment of Renowned Technologist Dr. Bob Glass as Chief Technical Officer–  QMC has since announced the Appointment of Andrew Robinson to the Newly Created Position of Senior Director Middle East Business Development  and Toshi Ando to the position of Senior Director Asian Business Development along with forming a strategic alliance with JETRO.

QTMM (Quantum Materials Corp) is to the Nano technology field what Amazon.com is to the discount retail field and very few are aware of this.

That is about to change in the next couple months. Quantum Materials Corp has developed a way to mass produce economically the Tetrapod Quantum Dots. This significant breakthrough allows what no other company has been able to do to date and that is provide commercialization of the QD’s to the various industries in kilogram quantities economically. The subsidiary Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc. is bringing the solar phase of nanotechnology to the forefront.  Solterra will be producing and distributing a Thin Film Quantum Dot PV Solar Cell which is differentiated from other PV cells by a unique technology that results in lower cost, higher efficiency, and broader spectral performance. Solterra’s Quantum Dot Solar Cell achieves a dramatically lower manufacturing cost per watt because no vacuum equipment is required, no expensive silicon is required and low-cost screen printing and/or inkjet techniques are used on inexpensive substrates. Secondly, the Solterra Thin Film Quantum Dot Solar Cell has the potential to generate multiple excitons from each proton providing the potential for exponential improvements in conversion efficiency. Third, Solterra’s PV cell is not only more efficient in the early morning and late afternoon compared to crystalline silicon PV cells, but it also has the potential to harvest light energy in the infrared and ultraviolet spectra. Solar power at night!

This QD technology is truly revolutionary with uses and applications still being explored that will open doors to advances in medical, aerospace, waste heat recovery, biotechnology & optoelectronics. Are you willing to risk loosing out on the next technology revolution that’s been in the making for some twenty years? At least put it on your radar screen to monitor.  Investing in QTMM may make your chance to retire early a possibility or at least a little more luxurious! IMO QTMM is a global play that’s about to pay.

OVER ENTHUSIASTIC JUBILANCE courtesy of QMC/Solterra!

January 28, 2010

Over enthusiastic jubilance, for once I’ve never been closer, is this the WHAT IF coming true!   Not too often in our life times does that feeling of unadulterated joy peak its head around the corner and pop into your life.  Can I cherish the moment? Should I indulge in the wafty aroma of life to its fullest? No, it very seldom happens and it has always been that carrot dangling in front, I’ve never seemed to be able to get to.  So what if this is the real deal? Fire works, cannons, orchestra’s and a stadium size choir singing Hallelujah, you finally made it before you hit the pearly gates.

We’ve been given more clues to this gravy train than you can shake a stick at. I’ve read more in this year than I’ve read in my lifetime, unfortunately I can’t recall worth a darn when I need to. So that brings me to where I’ve been half my life, I can dream can’t I?

The real reason I wrote this was to look at another side, failure. What’s the probability a start up can succeed? The odds we have a winner are stacked against us at 30 in 100 make it.  History has pretty well defined that startups are going to fail. So we must consider that possibility, as remote as it may seem to us following this company.

The average is within 10 years only 30% of the companies are still around, that’s an astonishing failure rate!  20% gone by the first year another 15% the second,  10% the third and another ~ 10% by the fourth year. So after 4 years almost 60% of the startups are history and over the next 6 years another 10 % vaporize. But how many of those were bought out, merged, or sold for a profit? We don’t know, so maybe it’s not as gloomy as it looks, but it still doesn’t look good.

http://smallbiztrends.com/2008/04/startup-failure-rates.html

So ask yourself, if it were to happen were would you be? Overextended should not be one of the answers.  At the minimum you should be no worse then you are now at paying your bills. This is a speculative stock even if it is very promising.  So if it goes belly up you should be able to keep your head above water, just like yesterday. Does it get any worse? Probably not now. One year ago it was a different story.  It was totally speculative with everything being based on pretty much a promise they would be able to do as they proposed in the business plan. Are they still speculative, as of this week the answer is still yes. In a couple weeks if our suppositions are on the money based on our puzzle piecing, less speculative is an understatement. Have we set our bar too high with our expectation for profit. Most likely.  So if we don’t actually make it the full mile and only make it to an average size solar and Quantum dot company stock price or worse, we only get ¼ the way, is that reason to be disappointed? Yes and no, Yes because we set the bar too high on our expectations of success and no because we still made money.  However you didn’t make any money if you didn’t sell any of your shares. Nothing goes straight up except Dell 1990 – 2000, DDRX, GMCR. So set your exit limit for a % of your shares and let the rest ride. I’m sure some of the Krispy Kream, ENRON, Citigroup, GM share holders wish they had done just that.

With that being said, how concerned should you be for success and company growth? What makes QMC and Solterra so different  from other companies?

IMO the economics associated with the technology, Managements resilience and drive and the public NEED for the service and products to be offered. They are not in just a single industry; their product crosses the gamut into a multitude of industry uses.

The company already has an equal 50/50 chance of being ahead simply from the fact there are two companies, a quantum dot company and a solar cell company. How many companies reduce your chance of failure by 50% from the get go?

One of the most compelling and least credible reason is scifi. Think of every cartoon adventure and gadget you can remember as a kid growing up. They all have come to reality in some form or another. Spaceships, 2 way wrist radio/tv, lasers…  This is the start of the next generation of nano technology gadgets,that QMC and Solterra will be major suppliers of product and like Bill Gates & Microsoft first to commercialize home computers, IBM computers, Hertz auto rentals, McDonalds fast food, Amazon discount on line retailer – they were the market leaders for many years during their growth development; and everyone of them came out of nowhere. Just like Quantum Materials Corp and Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc. are coming out of nowhere, I’m telling you this is the somewhere you want to be for the future.

So is it really over enthusiastic jubilance? Not until the dream is reality!

Profit from Nano HISTORY in the making!

January 10, 2010

What if I told you news that this nanotechnologies thing was a sure bet. Yeah right. Well, as we all know nothing is guaranteed but taxes and dying, or is it? Didn’t someone say history tends to repeat itself. Wars, famine, droughts, locust, the typical dooms day type of stuff. But that’s looking at the negative side, what about the positive, Lets look at investment opportunities.
First is understanding the maze of opportunities and filtering hype from reality which by itself isn’t trivial. There are four major industry sectors nanotechnology will impact — manufacturing and materials, electronics and IT, healthcare and life sciences, and energy and environment. In these industry sectors there are eight markets — aerospace, automotive, construction, electronics, energy and environment, manufacturing, medical & pharmaceutical, and oil & gas.
How big is this nanotechnologies thing? PRETTY MASSIVE as you can see above, it has tentacles everywhere.
Market size forecasts as presented in 2007
“When you read about the market size forecast for nanotechnology the National Science Foundation’s “$1 trillion by 2015” inevitable gets quoted. Lux Research even estimates $2.9 trillion by 2014. These are huge numbers! By comparison, the entire U.S. consumer goods sector in 2005 was $877 billion. Even the entire industrial production of the United States in 2005 was a little less than $2.9 trillion.”
The hype here is even though one piece of the puzzle fits they count all the pieces of the puzzle in their numbers above. Even so the key is the numbers involved with the nanotechnologies is going to be pretty overwhelming.

Now take a look at the Investment Outlook as it looked in 2004 for Nanotechnology – It looks like the overall status is behind schedule pg 19.

But this is really the meat and potatoes Page 5 Figure 5 holds the key to our future!  See the Senate Committee Testimony article below. 
Nanotechnologies are starting the commercialization phase and exiting the developmental ~20 year phase. Which if you think about it, Quantum Materials Corp (QTMM) will be mass producing the Quantum Dots that have for so long only been grown in miniscule amounts. You can’t commercialize a product with limited quantities. QTMM has now solved that problem. Being an ECONOMICAL Nanomaterial provider to these numerous industries will be a boom to all. (This is the testimony by Matthew Nordan, President of Lux Research Inc 2008 to the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation)

And if that wasn’t convincing here is an excerpt further enforcing that HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF, an article from http://www.nanowerk.com/spotlight/spotid=1328.php was dated January 25, 2007.

Golden opportunity or bad idea?
Whether investing in nanotechnology stocks today is an opportunity or not is to be answered by every investor for himself. It never hurts to be on the cautionary side though, and here are some concluding thoughts:
Truly revolutionary nanotechnology products and materials available as commercial products are years in the future (some say only a few years; some say many years) and the companies dealing with these products and materials probably are not listed yet or don’t even exist yet. Economist Norm Poire at Merrill Lynch tracks a series of historical growth innovations. He argues that growth innovations drive the economy and the stock market. It takes about 28 years for a new technology to become widely accepted, which then fuels a period of rapid growth lasting about 56 years. Some 112 years after invention the innovation reaches maturity and grows in line with population increases.
Growth Innovations

You’ll have to go to the chart from the link above that is below “Growth Innovations” showing Textiles, Railroad, Automotive, Computer, Nanotech?

Source: Norman Poire, Merrill Lynch
Whether nanotechnology becomes such a historical growth innovation remains to be seen. What is certain, though, is that the timeframe involved will span decades.

As you can see from the chart above we are in the infant stage of the development of this Info Revolution. I don’t believe it’s an “If” or “Whether” any longer, the nanomaterial phase (Quantum Materials Corp – QTMM) has just matured to allow the nanointermediate phase to start manufacturing for the nano-enabled product phase to deliver the end product. Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc. will be the nanointermediate company mass producing the solar cells and this is only the beginning! Some times it pays to take a lesson from history and step back to look at the big picture. Don’t let procrastination get in the way and miss this investment opportunity. You’ll have to decide for yourself the right vehicle to invest with, QTMM/ Solterra is one of several. IMO they are on the cutting edge of the technology and will emerge as one of the market leaders many will try to emulate.

Here’s some more positive comments not as technical but more from the heart:
Some comments on the internet about Nanotechnology For Dummies by Richard D. Booker, Mr. Earl Boysen
My prediction (and the authors) is that this is going to be the hot science subject of the next generation.
While the authors do tend to be wonderfully enthusiastic about the nanotech future, I think that their optimism is somewhat warranted. They show you the edge of the future that we are about to enter, and even after dismissing the hype, there’s some intriguing stuff out there.
Before reading this book, I didn’t know, nor did I care about nanotechnology. But now, I see all the applications of it in every day life!

The message is it really doesn’t matter where you get on board the nano train, you just need to get on board for the ride.
